We got this word today in COMD 1100. I didn’t understand what this word meant let alone how to pronounce it. Now that I know what the exact meaning of the word is I understand how it goes with the lesson we were learning today.
The fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect.

I encountered this word while reading the description for project #2
“On your walk, look for sites of different New Yorks overlapping—such juxtapositions include old and new,”
Now that I know the meaning of Juxtaposition, I know understand that I will be looking for two things in New York that are close together that looks different.
